SkyDrive Gets a New Name

Just a short one for today.

SkyDrive has been around for a while but has perhaps become more popular along with other cloud services given the ubiquity of fixed and wireless broadband connections. However, due to a trademark dispute, SkyDrive will have to find a new name after a run in with BSkyB.

Personally, I thought SkyDrive was a pretty cool name so I am a bit disappointed that the name will soon disappear. Anyway, we’ll see a new name released in due course but current predictions are Microsoft Drive. Perhaps a bit bland compared to the SkyDrive name but perhaps a safer choice that can go head to head with Google Drive.
